Wow, big news today: The FAA registration rules have been ruled illegal.

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/drone-pilots-dont-have-to-register-under-faas-controversial-rule-court-rules-2017-05-19

According to multiple reports the FAA is unlikely to appeal the ruling and is expected to update its rules in the coming weeks.
Yeah, but will I get my $5 back  ;D

It's still being negotiated. Alas, DJI won't let it go forward as I had hoped, but still working on it.
Any chance?

If the arms don't fold it would seem to be less portable than the Mavic.

Correct. Slightly thinner though.

This is basically a toy; they plan on promoting it heavily as a gift for 9-10 year old kids.

You can definitively tell its more of a toy.. But for 9-10 year olds? Seems more advanced than that age group...
